I said I was pretty confident I could. There's always a chance I couldn't, so I didn't make that absolute statement. Yes, it's unlikely we'll ever meet in person.
I never said I carried one. Maybe I do around my house, But Never out in PUBLIC.You have told everyone here.
Well; that’d be your loss of a potential excellent training opportunity, though the FoF training has been for TFP alumni only. It‘d be a bit much for newbies.
Lets use a hypothetical example.
Our options are a Glock 19, snub 38 and LCP 380 - we shoot the 19 best.
We are retired, so work is not a limiting factor.
Glock 19 on belt + LCP or snub in pocket, everywhere* = "doing it right" A
Glock 19 everywhere = "better than average" B
Snub or LCP everywhere = average C
Doesn't always carry when they could = deficient D
*Everywhere means / implies everywhere legal.
I don't assume that most here don't carry.No one expects you to remember what everyone carries. However, you seem to ASSUME most here on a "Concealed Carry" themed forum do not actually carry, which is pretty damn laughable.
I think the issue here is that you are new to the forum... and barge in with your expertise while assuming and implying we're a bunch of noobs (who are just so lucky that you showed up with your brilliance).I don't assume that most here don't carry.
Let me reference my post above in reply to what I defined as "doing it right"
I assume (and I'm likely right) that 25-50% on forum would be at C
They have a gun that they carry when going to an area of perceived greater threat, in that example its the Glock 19 and maybe the snub / LCP as a "back-up".
Otherwise for a quick trip to the store, out to eat, walking the dog, they would just carry the snub / LCP where they perceive low anticipated threat.
I am specifically excluding work as dress requirement for work may hamper what one would carry.
Its not that I assume that most don't carry, its just likely 25-50% are willing to settle for "better than nothing" when they otherwise don't have to; which is C average. I wish I was wrong, but I'm probably not. I futilely (but not naively) encourage striving to carry B (the "bad area" gun) everywhere legal whenever possible. Of course most can (and do) ignore my suggestion, which I suppose is "pretty damn laughable".
But but but I am a noobI think the issue here is that you are new to the forum... and barge in with your expertise while assuming and implying we're a bunch of noobs (who are just so lucky that you showed up with your brilliance).
The collective expertise and experience that has been here on this forum, BEFORE you arrived, is nothing short of stunning. Seriously. Some REAL experts here. A little humility goes a long way for new members on most forums.
There's a blast from the past, had to be 07 or 08 we trained in Pa. I have both articles he wrote in that rag, this was the second one.CDW4ME……For YOUR enlightenment…….
